Mother in the Middle Searching for Peace in the Mommy Wars, by Deborah Shaw Lewis &
Charmaine Crouse Yoest
1996,  p11
I had graduated with a B.A. in elementary education. Afterward I had taken a job at a day-care center, teaching three-year-olds...
Several years later I took the position of director at...a small chain of day-care centers in and around Chicago...
We were the best that private day care could offer.
But...I knew I could never put a child of mine in any day care...

My mornings were spent simply trying to maintain minimal control of (several) three-year-olds, all desperate for some individual attention from an adult.

I set up a written schedule: six children each day, one at a time, on a rotating basis. I knew it wasn't much, but that was the only way I could be sure that each child got my individual attention at least once a week.

This was the most prestigious and pricey place in town to send a child. I overheard parents talking about how this center was expensive but it was worth it to get quality care for their children. I wanted to shake those parents! And suggest that they stop and count the number of children in my room. Couldn't they see how crowded we were? Why didn't one of them, just once, ask me a direct question about what was going on in the classroom?

Finally...DFACS (Department of Family and Children Services) showed up for an inspection. But their policy was to phone in advance. So the director knew the day ahead of time. She had the place shining. And thirty minutes before the DFACS inspector arrived, half my class was loaded into one of the school vans for an aimless drive around town until the director turned on the back porch light. That was her signal that it was OK for them to return. So while DFACS inspected, I had a comfortable (number of) children in my care, with an assistant teacher. The inspector was in and out of my room in three or four minutes, without bothering to ask me a single question.
